The TV series starring the Fastest Man Alive just can’t come fast enough! Since Warner Bros. announced their plans to make a “Flash” TV series, set to premiere on the CW before the “Flash” movie, the minds of “Flash” fans everywhere have been racing with possibilities.
While this isn’t the first time that the Scarlet Speedster has starred in his own TV series, there’s no denying that this new “Flash” series will be infinitely better than its predecessor—especially considering the fact that it could potentially link to the newly-developed DC cinematic and/or television universe. The possibilities are virtually endless! With that, we here at Splash Page present to you a list of five Flash stories that we hope to see in the new “Flash” TV series.
Guest starring every single one of the Flash’s enemies, “Rogue War” sees the original Rogues (Captain Cold, Weather Wizard, Mirror Master, Captain Boomerang, and the new Trickster) fighting an all-out war against the New Rogues (Heatwave, Magneta, Pied Piper, and the original Trickster) with the Flash stuck right in the middle. Also appearing in this story are villains such as Gorilla Grodd, Girder, Plunder, Murmur, and the Top!
After Wally West accidentally runs way too fast, he begins getting mysterious visions of a terrible future. Now, Wally must come face to face with the idea of being stuck in the Speed Force—not unlike the Silver Age Flash, Barry Allen. “Terminal Velocity” answers many questions raised by the Speed Force and also features cameos from the likes of Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern.
Blood Will Run
A crazed cult leader begins murdering people that the Flash has previously saved forcing Wally West to use his brain (not his feet) in order to figure out who the psychopath’s next victim will be. To make matters worse, Wally’s one-time girlfriend turned metal-manipulating Rogue, Magneta, is in town and somehow involved in the murderer’s killing spree.
When one of Barry Allen’s arch-rivals, Professor Zoom a.k.a. the Reverse-Flash, re-appears in Keystone City, Wally West teams up with Impulse and the original Flash in order to stop the costumed menace. Later, it’s revealed that this Reverse-Flash is actually Hunter Zolomon, a former friend of Wally’s hellbent on exacting his revenge on the Scarlet Speedster.
After his apparent death during the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths, Barry Allen returns to our world somehow miraculously escaping from the Speed Force, where he was trapped. Of course, this all turns out to be a clever ploy from one of the Flash’s greatest enemies as Barry’s powers mysteriously begin to negate the powers of all of the other speedsters in the DC universe.
